Mark Gottfried claims North Carolina State owes him at least $75,000 for not living up to the contract agreed upon when firing him in 2017.

According to the Triangle Business Journal, the former N.C. State men’s basketball coach is suing the university for failing to make buyout payments. The nine-page lawsuit claims that, after agreeing to monthly payments, N.C. State hasn’t made any payments to Gottfried since Aug. 31, 2018.

In May 2018, N.C. State allegedly sent Gottfried a Notice of Intent to Discharge for Cause. The lawsuit claims N.C. State owes at least $75,000, with “the precise amount to be proven at trial.”
